A disgruntled cafe manager hires a crew of misfits to run the owners business into the ground, but instead they save his life.
When restaurant owner, Peter, leaves quickly on a much-needed medical sabbatical to deal with his own issues, his disgruntled manager, Henry, hires a crew of misfits and his replacement in an attempt to put Peter out of business.
Henry takes a job offer down the street and becomes a painful thorn in Peter’s side. Upon his return, Peter discovers his business is no longer something he cares for, or even recognizes. Only after this unusual new crew bands together to protect one another from insults dished out by Henry, does Peter start to get a sense of what he has.
Peter attempts to train them to be the crew he needs, but becomes so frustrated he, again, considers closing the business. When his wife, whom he’s separated from, announces she wants a divorce in order to re-marry, the misfits take on another role as his support group. Peter learns to accept this fate, offering to throw a rehearsal dinner for the new couple to exercise his closure.
When it’s a complete disaster, Peter gets in a fight with the fiancé and throws out the wedding party. Then he has a stroke. The only people who care and take on the responsibility of rehabilitating him, are the misfits. These strangely lovable people become the eclectic family he appreciates as he turns over a healthier, happier chapter in his life.
